2018 Bears of Brooks River book: 720 is a small female subadult bear. She has a shaggy, grizzled light brown coat. Her ears are short, triangular, and match the color of her coat. She has a short, straight muzzle with thick hair underneath, giving the appearance of a beard.
When first identified in Fall of 2016, Ranger Leslie described 720 as a larger subadult, but still a subadult.
2018 Bears of Brooks River book: 720 has only been identified in the fall. She primarily fishes the cutbank and lower river. Like many subadults, she has been seen playing with other bears around her size and age.
720 was first identified as a subadult in Fall 2016. This 2016 subadult that was assigned bear monitoring number 720 also demonstrates how the bear monitoring numbering systems recycles. There was previously an adult female that was assigned bear monitoring number 720; she was last observed in 2006. When a bear monitoring number has been assigned to a bear that has not been observed in the prior ten years, the bear monitoring number is restored to a usable number for a newly identified and classified bear for bear monitoring data purposes.
